Born & raised in California and having learned to ski at Bear Valley, I’ve always felt at peace in the Sierras. Although my ski racing career ended at the age of 15 when I decided to focus on swimming, the opportunity to race on Feather Duster (no I won’t be skiing in a speedo) for the first time in over 10 years was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I have more experience sitting on the Koala lift than any of my competition and am confident this will give be a leg up on the other athletes.
